The Starbucks audit is conducted by a third-party auditor approved by Starbucks or Starbucks itself to verify that the manufacturer meets the production specifications of Starbucks products.

Starbucks is the name of a chain of coffee companies in the United States. Founded in 1971, Starbucks is the world's largest coffee chain and its headquarters is located in Seattle, Washington, USA. In addition to coffee, Starbucks also has products such as tea, stuffed cakes and cakes. Starbucks has nearly 12,000 stores worldwide in North America, South America, Europe, the Middle East and the Pacific.

1. Starbucks product quality control

The important content of Starbucks Factory Auditing Standards is to test the product quality control capabilities and conditions of the manufacturing enterprise.

In terms of quality control, importers usually check the quality management status of products from purchase, storage, equipment management, production process, post-processing, packaging to transportation according to many international international quality standards. The most important quality. The audit standards are: AQL international inspection quality standard, ISO9000 international quality standard system and special quality control standards set by multinational companies according to consumer requirements.

AQL is the most commonly used acceptance parameter and is commonly used in export inspection of clothing and textiles. AQL standards are AQL0.010, AQL0.025, AQL0.065, AQL1000, etc., applied to the inspection of different substances. At the time of inspection, according to the batch range, inspection level, and AQL value, the sampling quantity and the number of qualified and unqualified products are determined by one sampling plan. In view of the versatility and standardization of AQL, it has become a passport for quality inspection at the time of customer inspection.

Importers may also impose different requirements on product quality in the audit system based on the consumer needs of their respective products. For example, after the European Union enacted a new draft standard for toy safety in 2006, many EU importers quickly increased the requirement to ban the use of chemicals that may cause cancer and cause genetic mutations.

2. The Starbucks code of conduct. 

With the rise of the Western social responsibility movement, the production code standards have also become one of the important standards for the importer's inspection system. The Code of Practice is developed by international industry associations and multilateral agencies and NGOs to regulate manufacturers' production practices, such as the International Toy Association (ICTI), the World Sporting Goods Industry Association (WFSGI), and the UK Ethical Trading Initiative. Corporate Code of Conduct developed by the Alliance (ETI), the Workers' Rights Association (WRC), the Garment Factory Code of Conduct (WRAPP), and the Fair Labor Union (FLA). The Code of Practice also includes a code of conduct that includes and incorporates corporate social responsibility, based on the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Labour Organization's Basic Labour Convention.

The production guidelines formulated by importers and international organizations are different, but the core content is the contents of international conventions concerning factory human rights, labor standards, safety and health, and anti-terrorism. The specific practices for implementing production norms are basically the same: In accordance with national laws and industry standards of multinational corporations, specific behavioral norms are defined, based on the laws and regulations of the host country, guided by internationally recognized standards, and subject to industry standards and company regulations.

In terms of factory human rights and labor standards, the most concerned about the factory is whether there are child laborers; whether workers are forced to work overtime; whether wages are duely paid; whether workers enjoy the social welfare prescribed by law; whether the workers’ working environment and living environment are sanitary comfort; whether or not there is a violation of human rights; it provides a favorable guarantee for the human rights and welfare of workers.

In terms of safety and health, Starbucks factory inspection system involves fire safety, health and safety, emergency treatment measures, protective equipment distribution, medical care, environmental sanitation, etc., to ensure production safety, workers health and safety, and environmental protection.
